|David Freese cooling his heels against Blue Jays |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Angels third baseman David Freese, who has been dealing with a shin problem, is not in the Tuesday night lineup against visiting Toronto. John McDonald is manning the position instead.
Freese had been hot when healthy enough to play. He had 11 hits in 23 at-bats before taking an 0 for 3 on Monday.

(7/8/14) Angels third baseman David Freese went 0 for 3 in his return to the starting lineup Monday as his team took home a 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.
Freese hadn't started since Friday while dealing with a shin bruise, though he did deliver a pinch-hit home run Saturday. His hitless game Monday ends a five-game hitting streak in which he managed to record extra-base hits in each game. Freese has hit .250/.324/.346 with four home runs and 27 RBI in 228 at-bats.

(7/6/14) Angels third baseman David Freese was held out of the starting lineup Saturday against the Astros because of a shin contusion suffered the previous. However, he still managed to make his presence felt with a pinch-hit home run.
Freese took reliever Anthony Bass deep for a two-run home run in the seventh inning. He drew a walk his next time around in the same inning before his night was over. He is hitting .253 with four homers and 27 RBI in 225 at-bats.

(6/28/14) Angels third baseman David Freese went 3 for 4 with a double and three RBI in his team's 6-2 win over the Royals Saturday.
Freese drove in one run with a fourth-inning single and then another two runs with another single in the sixth. It was his second three-hit game of the season. Freese has hit .238/.312/.301 with two home runs and 21 RBI in 206 at-bats.
|After winning World Series MVP in 2011 and making his first All-Star team with career-best numbers in 2012, hometown hero David Freese became something of an albatross for the Cardinals in 2013. His track record forbade them from sitting him -- in addition to the postseason heroics, he had been no worse than .290 hitter across four injury-plagued seasons -- but it didn't change the fact that he wasn't producing. And yet he was the reason NL MVP candidate Matt Carpenter was playing out of position at second base, thereby blocking former first-rounder Kolten Wong's ascension to the majors. Something had to give, and that something ended up being Freese, who the Cardinals dealt to the Angels this offseason. With the Angels, he'll have job security, which will allow him to work through his struggles. A return to health may ultimately have the greatest say in his production, though. Freese hurried back from a lower back injury last spring, and though his numbers were most impacted in April, he may not have been quite right all year. He's no certainty to bounce back, of course, but if the Mike Moustakas-Will Middlebrooks class of third baseman doesn't appeal to you on Draft Day, don't forget about Freese late.
